Report: Mets pick Gee over Montero for final rotation spot
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:48 am ET) The Mets have picked Dillon Gee over prospect Rafael Montero for the fifth spot in the rotation, sources told ESPN.com. New York went with Gee despite a late push from Montero, as the team sought a replacement for the injured Zack Wheeler, who is out for the season due to Tommy John surgery.

Gee was the Mets' Opening Day starter in 2014. He was headed for a bullpen role before Wheeler hurt his elbow this spring. Gee will likely make his first start of the season April 10 against the Braves.

Jake Marisnick, Jonathan Villar, Will Harris crack Astros' roster
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:33 am ET) Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick, utility man Jonathan Villar and pitcher Will Harris have all been informed they will break camp with the big-league club, according to the Houston Chronicle.

It will be the first time Marisnick has cracked the Opening Day roster. The 24-year-old hit .306/.395/.500 this spring and is a candidate to play regularly at center field.

"It's going to feel like Christmas," Marisnick said.

Villar, 23, batted .209 during his second season in the majors in 2014. This spring, he slashed .256/.356/.436 over 39 at-bats.

"He's made some of the most spectacular plays of the spring, both in the outfield and in the infield," general manager Jeff Luhnow said of Villar. "It's a great story."

Harris, 30, will join Houston's bullpen this season after posting a 4.34 ERA last season with the Diamondbacks. He registered a 2.45 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP and 5:2 K:BB ratio over 11 innings this spring.
